This trip is a suitable adventure for who would like to have a combination trip in Lut desert. The journey is a mix of 3 world heritage sites, desert safari, camping inside of Kaluts in lut desert, staying in a traditional style of the house of locals and discover a few hidden and untraveled routes in Dashte Lut desert.  The Lut vast desert is one of the main attractions of Iran in terms of nature and adventure travel. We will start the tour from your hotel in Kerman city and after the desert tour, we will drop you off in your hotel in Kerman.  On the first day, we spend our day visiting Arg-e Bam which takes 2 hours and half to get there and drive to non-touristic village of Keshit. The second day, we will spend half a day for exploring a couple of hidden villages through amazing road towards the late desert and the rest of the day, we will drive to Lut desert and have off road driving inside of Kaluts and sand dune. The last day we will drive to one the hottest places in the world called ”Gandom berian” . After finishing the desert part, we will have another half a day exploring tour on the way back to Kerman.

The Lut Desert, or Dasht-e-Lut, is the largest desert in Iran and is located in the south-east of the country. It is the world's 27th -largest desert, and was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List on July 17, 2016. It stretches about 480 kilometers (300 mi) long and 320 kilometers (200 mi) wide. In the east rises a great massif of dunes and sand, while in the west an extensive area of high ridges is separated by wind-swept corridors. In its lowest, salt-filled depression—less than 1,000 feet (300 metres) above sea level—the summer heat and low humidity are believed to be unsurpassed on the planet. Between June and October, this arid subtropical area is swept by strong winds, which transport sediment and cause aeolian erosion on a colossal scale. Consequently, the site presents some of the most spectacular examples of aeolian yardang landforms (massive corrugated ridges). It also contains extensive stony deserts and dune fields. The property represents an exceptional example of ongoing geological processes. NASA research results suggest that the Lut Desert in Iran is one of the hottest places on Earth. According to satellite data from NASA in 2005, a surface temperature of 70.7 degrees Celsius was recorded in the Lut desert.
This temperature is the highest temperature ever recorded by satellite from the surface of planet Earth. That’s why it is called the ‘2005 point’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7xtw9gRUOY
